Sukaar Foundation Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programs provide access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation facilities (such as washrooms and hand washing stations), and hygiene education for women, men, and children to keep families healthy and break the cycle of poverty. In many communities, women and girls are most affected by water scarcity. Women and children spend an estimated 08 hours each day collecting water, often from distant, unsafe sources to provide for their families. When women do not have a safe place for sanitary practices, they risk increased violence, increased health risks, and diminished abilities to participate in school and public life. Sukaar Foundation WASH programs consider the unique needs of all members of the community, and make access and education key components of our programs.
